Welcome to my page!

I am a man of many interests - TOO many, I think, lol - and because of that I never gave writing the attention I should have when I was young. I started writing poetry in December of 2016, and joined Poetry Soup at the same time. I am currently working on an R&B/Soul album for a major label, so, as has usually been the case, poetry does not get the time I'd like to give it, (though I plan to change that in the future, and write a book-or-two, a sci-fi novel and an autobiography) ...

I like to incorporate classic styles and phrasing into a modern frame when I write poetry, and try to cover a wide range of genres, but I enjoy the darkly sensual the most, despite its limited audience. I hope you'll give my rather unusual style a chance, read a piece-or-two, and leave a comment, if you'd be so kind. I also hope you'll visit my music web site as well, (at the following address under my moniker "Bahku") - mostly (very) old recordings there, but also a snippet of the first single coming, and more new stuff soon!

Thanks for stopping by my page - blessings!


SEPTEMBER 11, 2001

Image result for 9/11 cross

SEPTEMBER 11, 2001

It was the local Wal-Mart (fifteen minutes from me) where Mohamed Atta and accomplices bought the box-cutters they used the next day on the planes, and I found out later I was in that store the same time THEY were ...

Very strange how these things touch everyone in some way, and EVERYone was touched that day. What a gorgeous day it was here in Maine, an absolutely perfect late-summer day, without a single cloud in the sky ...

I remember how incongruous and bizarre it felt to know such a thing could happen on a sunny, glorious day like that. I sat in my folk's den with my mom, tears quietly streaming my face as the towers came down ...

Knowing I was watching thousands of lives being snuffed in an instant. something I pray I never experience again. A sight like that seeps into your marrow, and the pain and disruption never goes away ...

But I also remember the hundreds of first-responders and others running toward the buildings ... for while it should never have happened, such horrors bring out the very best of humanity, and that is what I try to focus on now ...

Bless all those souls lost that day, those lost since through the many diseases caused by the event and its aftermath, give peace to their loved ones and families, and hold the hearts of all those traumatized by that horrid day ...

And never, NEVER forget. <3

Greg,In England then,we were baby sitting gran-kids on 9/11 watching( unbelieving) the live TV thereof of this 'where were you when'; replica of the equally unbelievable live 1963 Dallas Kennedy assination ).Beyond belief but not words as my poem thereon written soon after at this PS link https://www.poetrysoup.com/poem/consequences_74783

I live an hour and a half from Portland and an hour from Boston - both played a part - chilling - I was at the local Home Depot when I heard first reports

As heinous a crime as it was we still don't know who was responsible and who was complicit. There's a mountain of evidence that the towers were brought down by a controlled demolition not to mention the half-arsed investigation following. I believe the first hand accounts of responders, civilian witnesses and experts in their field any day over the official findings of a government which has not been truthful in what it knows. The involvement of the Saudis casts a shadow over this tragic event but money, power, and influence are more important to national security than the lives of a few thousand souls so we point the finger at Bin Laden to feel good about having someone to blame. Jus sayin!

Boys, it's okay to have a different point of view - it's called freedom of expression and I'll defend that all day long. In other words, play the ball, not the man. Someone once said the first casualty of war is the truth, and 9/11 were the first shots fired in a war which continues today. Man, don't get me started on "climate change". Cheers!

Your efforts at trying to sound intelligent Rob are at least minimally entertaining. In reality, the only thing I fear is those whose sidelong glances at truths are poetic hyperboles. Write to my new contest and be more entertaining - no meter required - you're welcome dearest

Keith, a noble effort but remember the type of person you are trying to wake. I don't blame him or his kind, because once you are woke, you can never go back. Craig, your reactions are understandable, fear drives most of it. I would suggest you avoid ad hominems though, they are not as sophisticated as some of your other fallacies that I prefer.

Craig, so many elements unexplained. Scientists and physicists found thermite in the dust which liquifies iron, and molten metal was found in the ruins. In physics, static equilibrium and conservation of momentum make it impossible for any structure to collapse at free fall acceleration without explosives or a preweakening of structure. There are dozens of other anomalies I could mention but if I don't get the garden done before the she-witch gets home I'll be a collapsing structure!

I wouldn't say I was brilliant but I'm okay with it if others do. Got to get back to the garden now. I've got the day off and wifey has me digging and mulching and pruning before the rains come. Spring is here and I feel renewed...NOT!

ooops, I forgot I was in the presence of brilliance both architecturally and politically. I've seen more than once from differing perspectives why both buildings fell in their own footprint but failed to consult Mr. Carmack, my apologies.

The moon landing was a fake? Oh no, better not tell Buzz Aldrin that or he'll go lunar-tic on your chinny chin chin. I'm not a conspiracy nut but I do know when something doesn't smell right. My BS radar is finely tuned.

Craig - since you need to believe that Building 7 fell into its own footprint at almost free-fall speed simply by vertical damage and fire, then your need is an emotional one. As is your fallacy of trying to equate this charade to moon landing theories. I don't blame you Craig, your position on this is expected. I leave you with my condolences sir.

I know, and the moon landing was fake as well - get a grip guys, at least about this situation because you are ordinarily very logical.

Exactly, not only 'half-arsed', but quick. Building 7 alone is enough to undermine the whole 'official' narrative. The saddest thing of all, is not that the puppeteers did it, but that they were able to sell it so easily to so many.

Greg, I remember that day as well. I was working and my coworker hollered to me to stop what I was doing and come look at the t.v. We both watched horrified and couldn't quite fathom what we were watching. It did give me the creeps when it was found out that the terrorists were so close to home to start with! You wrote a beautiful heartfelt blog. It doesn't seem possible that it has been 18 years, my heart still goes out to all those who lost their lives as well as the brave heroes who lost their lives helping others and the aftermath of it all, and those still suffering today from diseases and grief. We will never forget!

So many tragedies, New York, Hiroshima, Nagasaki, Rwanda, Cambodia, Uganda etc etc. The Bible verse at Ecclesiastes 8:9 has proved true "... Man has dominated man to his harm." All human oppression soon to end - Daniel 2:44

A most thoughtful blog, Greg. So unbelievably sad was that day- we will never forget it. My husband and I were at our fire equipment business that morning, 60 miles North of New York City. We knew so many of the 343 firefighters to whom we supplied helmets, coats, boots, tools, etc., who met their horrible fate that day- one who also lived on our street and others nearby who commuted to the City. We have visited the 911 Museum in NYC twice, and each time, we have lovingly caressed the names of the many we knew- now etched on the steel ledge around the memorial fountain- who we will remember forever. Eighteen years have passed- but it still seems like yesterday. Sandra

This Day, No One Will Ever Forget. Such a tragedy indeed. My heart dropped when I heard the news. The day after, my grandfather died. So many emotions caress my heart, today and tomorrow. I am keeping the families who lost their loved ones, in my thoughts and prayers. ~ Brandy

A friend called and told me to turn on the TV. All my kids were home with me (I home school) and we sat there in shock, watching things unfold. ugh what an awful day. So sad.

thanks for this, Greg. I thought of it just last night when I realized it was Sept. 10 and so today would be our remembrance of that horrible event. but also remembering the brave souls who fought to save others and the tragic victims of this atrocity. I was in my bedroom with the news on and it was very surreal!

I was up at around 03:00hrs (Australia) watching live tv and did not want to believe what I was seeing. My friend and workmate William (New York born) rang me and said, "are you seeing? it is real". the heart breaking images played over and over. Such sadness when i see old movies that show the twin towers and wonder about all the lives touched. The world changed.

I was mowing the lawn that fateful day. At first, like everyone else, I thought an airplane lost control and crashed into one of the towers. When the second plane hit, I just knew we were under a terrorist attack. Words can't begin to describe how I felt at that very moment. Confusion, anger, rage, utter disbelief, the works! I had to go to therapy for two months to help me deal with the earth-shattering aftermath. Horrible anniversary!

I owned an indoor sports centre at the time and was working behind the bar when a newsflash appeared on TV. It was about 10.30pm at night in Australia when the first plane hit. I knew instinctively I was watching a world changing event. I stayed up into the early hours watching it all unfold including the towers coming down.

I remember, great sadness and immense anger fought an epic battle in my heart. Both are still present and will be as long as I live.. The dark world thrives on violence. And sadly some love to go along with it because they and their black hearts are ruled by the dark lord and do its biddings, IMHO.

I was resting in the afternoon when my wife called me urgently to come and watch the TV as a big tragedy was taking place in US. It was a sight never to be forgotten and I still wonder why humans think that by killing innocent people that can achieve anything but hatred. The innocent will never be forgotten.

Like many I watched the news footage of that horrific day, at first we thought there had been a plane crash but as the story unfolded we were updated with the news that it had been a terrorist attack. As time went on we heard of the heroic attempts by the emergency services to help those trapped in the buildings, sadly many losing their own lives in doing so. We must never give in to these terrorists who preach nothing but hatred. And those that died may they rest in peace and never be forgotten.

I was watching a feed of Big Brother on our SA TV, when they cut into it with the news of the tragedy. I first thought that it was a movie trailer ... My thoughts with all - not only the American people but all who have been touched by this event. War is not the answer to anything.
